2013 Ford Focus Electric 4dr Hatchback (electric DD)
I just leased a 2013 Ford Focus Electric and am very pleased with this vehicle. Ford did a lot of homework with this effort and it shows. It is the most solid car I have ever driven, including the best German and Japanese. The doors "thunk' like a vault. The ride feels like a much heavier car. The steering is accurate and handling nimble. The car's range varies depending on driving techniques and other electric accessories used such as headlamps and air conditioning. I can count on at least 80 miles before needing to recharge. 120 volt recharging is OK but slow. 240 volt is the way to go - 3 to 4 hours for a full charge.
Solid car. Electronics are amazing. Acceleration is like that of a V8.
Back seat room limited. Would have liked to have a garage door opener homelink accessory - not sure why it was excluded as most other models have this. Owners manual not very specific or user friendly.
